    What is the most important lesson that a father can teach his daughter about love?

    Love is not a struggle.
    Love doesn't hurt, or inflict pain.

    Most of all,
    Love is patient
    Love is kind.
    Love is not easily angered
    Love delights in truth.

    To settle for nothing less. That they deserve true love.

    This is where the tough yet protective father comes into play. Dad always protects and loves his daughter unconditionally, yet can be over bearing at times. They worry about their baby girl's safety. This can benefit the girl as well.

    The father wants the girl to fall in love and be happy, despite showing a side that says otherwise. Dad will however, implement a safety net for their daughter. One of protection against those who are untrustworthy or bullies. Whether that is physical strength or mental, the child will gain a strong sense of who is right for them or what suitor will bring them down.

    Mother's of daughters tend to be a little more free wheeling in regards to their daughter's behavior, where as a father will be strict while imparting a healthy dose of knowledge onto the girl, especially about what teenage and early 20 year old men are truly thinking and/or after.

      Well put!  Dad's do feel differently about their daughter's falling in love.

    Be practical and realistic. Most men did not grow up playing with dolls, pretending to be fathers or husbands and therefore they are not likely to want to "settle down" as quickly as most women. The majority of men don't start thinking along the lines of marriage until they are in their (late) 20s or early 30s. Always keep that in mind.
    "Never separate your mind from your heart when making relationship decisions. The purpose of the mind is to protect the heart."

      True that most boys probably do not grow up dreaming of marriage like many little girls do.  I do agree in balance of heart and mind.  "All" heart can be just as destructive as "over" thinking can be.

    Love is something that will develop upon time. Being with someone that matters will bond the love of togetherness. Love is about sharing the good & bad times. It is the little things that you share with someone that matters. The happiness & joys that you will feel when you have love.

    Love is something that you can give while receiving it at the same time.

      True edham, I think that talking about loving through good & bad it important.  Too many people call it quits at the first sign of bad.  Very good advice!  It's the little things that sometimes matter the most. Thanks!
